    Well, i'll wait a little while longer for the issues to be resolved I think. Just bought an Ultrawide and have a HOTAS, so want to play it on that setup.

    That sucks for HOTAS, very daft choice, I jumped in for 5 mins last night, but I had a few drinks prior so I'll have more time to play today

    That seems really complacent, a fair amount of flight game enthusiasts will think that "if HOTAS is an afterthought then this really is not the game for me".

    Being fair, this isn't a flight sim. It's an arcade game with aircraft in it.

    Maybe, but even midnight club and need for speed made sure that the usual wheel and pedal configurations worked with the games from the off. I just can't help but feel it would have been worth the effort.

    Played a solid 3 hours of this on my PC with a Xbox remote and love it. Got that Ace combat feel to it.

    Max settings and 150% render scale 2060 will happily run at 100fps+ very nice looking game and awesome story

    No 21:9 support is a deal breaker for me.

    Jesus Christ!!:eek:

    I bit the bullet and bought it yesterday, and my HOTAS worked straight away, so no complaints here. Don't want to play too much until my ultrawide gets here, and there is an ultrawide fix. Although that guy doesnt seem to have any issues:confused:

    Can confirm this HOTAS workaround working perfectly for me https://www.x360ce.com/

    Download the 64bit file and place into AC7 installation folder. Run the file before booting game.

    Having an absolute blast. Not sure if only me but turning off the BGM to hear those planes roar through the sky is a must..

    BGM? I have to admit, the sound stage is brilliant, I'm using a 360 controller with 'full' flight controls rather than the basic option. However, I wish there were more options as I dislike not being able to use both sticks for control. Just the one and triggers.

    Still waiting for this to come down in price :o

    Cheapest I can find it for is £35 via Instant Gaming, I loved the Ace Combat series on the Playstation as a kid... Is it worth the asking price?

    Have they added 21:9 support yet or do you still have to fudge it?

    Fudge away!
    But if you apply the fov fixes alongside, it works well.
